Storyline

While US president Barrett opens a school bearing his name, his inseparable dog Teddy gets lost in the commotion when a gun is fired at its master. To avoid a press scandal, the matter is kept discrete. The dog wanders off to a country orphanage, where Teddy chooses as new master Danny Milbright, a shy boy who never seems to be considered for adoption but has a strong sense of justice, impelling him to return Teddy to his master. It proves an eventful journey all the way to D.C. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The Oval Office desk, rug and props are those used in the The West Wing (1999) TV series, and both National Treasure movies. The Oval Office set was a full scale replica of the Oval Office, and was built specifically for First Dog on the stage of the Sobrato high school theater by high school film students and teachers under a unique mentorship program. The mentorship program was created by First American Cinema to mentor the senior students on an actual feature film set. The mentorship program was created by Bryan Michael Stoller of First American Cinema, and Gary Harmon of the Sobrato High School (Sobrato Conservatory of the Arts). See more »

LOVED the movie.... FIRST DOG.
15 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I LOVED THE MOVIE..... FIRST DOG. i don't want to go on and on about it only that it has a wonderful message and you'll loved the movie. anyone who loves animals and a happy ending will love this movie. The actors are terrific and the dog was a beautiful and loving animal.

it is silly to have to go on and on for 10 lines. I just want to say again that this is a great movie for adults as well as kids.

Makes you wish you could adopt all the kids in foster care and all the dogs and cats who are in the HUMANE SOCIETY system. I will sure be buying this movie for my own home library and will give it to family and friends when birthdays and Christmas comes around.
